Course content

This course is an introduction to the different literary genres of the Middle Ages, as well as an introduction to the use of Latin as a means of communication and cultural transfer in this period.

Learning outcome

Students at this course are expected to meet the following learning objectives, divided into knowledge and skills:

 

Knowledge

  • Students should acquire basic knowledge of Medieval Latin language and literature, and of its history and significance as a foundation for Western culture.

 

Skills

  • Students should acquire the skills of reading, translating and interpreting texts (in the original language) from the various periods and genres of Medieval Latin literature, perform grammatical and stylistic analyses of these texts and relate them to their literary, cultural and historical contexts, as well as be able to translate from Latin to Norwegian.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures and seminars. Among the activites are six smaller assignments, which have to be handed in, consisting in three simple translations from Norwegian (or English if preferred) to Latin. Four of these assignments are compulsory.

80 % mandatory attendance is required in order to take the exam (which means that one can be not present in 2.5 of the 12 weeks of lectures). Alternative arrangements can potentially be discussed with the teacher.
